/ga/ Adult (Gay)
https://www.craigslist.org/about/FOSTAWell, this is fucked the hell up. Craigslist personals were the way I discovered my sexuality on my own terms and now it’s been terminated. Discuss.
>>134520OP here, I feel this entire post mad hard. We sound like pretty much the same type of person in that I too identify as a sissy in my male/male relationship side of the spectrum and I’m not into the gay scene either. I also feel like I have nowhere to go now for this sort of mutual consenting safe adult outlet and it really fucking bugs me that it’s all being justified under false pretenses. Not only does this do literally nothing for people who are being legit trafficked by fucked up cartels and gangs and individuals operating their own independent slave trades in the underground, but it literally blindly robs people like you and I of our identities we’ve become used to and tempts is towards places we aren’t comfortable or familiar with which in turn is actually dangerous or at least very risky IMO. I have one guy I was with last who still talks to me here and there who lucky for me is pretty much my ideal match sexually but if he drops off the face of the earth I don’t think I’m really going to have anything but my dildo to get me off in the same way, and that’s not really gonna do it in the end. As for sites I’m pretty sure it’s slim pickings. I don’t wanna jinx it but I think it’s fucking hilarious that apps like Tinder and Grindr are still up when those can be exploited in pretty much the exact same way. I don’t want to use Backpage because hardly anyone in my state uses it besides escorts and that’d single me out and make me super visible and my privacy is pretty important to me because the people closest to me, while they know I’m queer, would probably think it’s alienating that I’m fucking people from CL. I dunno, I’m getting a little desperate at this point because I think this is going to just get worse and worse with time. If anyone knows any alternatives I hope they post here and let us know.
It never got me laid, but it could have if I wasn't so goddamn shy and picky. I will miss it.The whole human trafficking deal is old meme, backpage cracked down on that shit damn near a decade ago. Prostitution as it happened on bp and cl was a different beast entirely, not a problem worth sacrificing more of our rights to combat. The government doesn't actually care about escorts, hell, they purchase their services with our tax dollars.This has nothing to do with protecting children or eliminating prostitution; those are just alibis. it's just another attack on free speech, another experiment in controlling the dialogue. We really can't afford that, seeing as Donald Trump's heartbeat is the only thing saving us from two years of Mike Pence as basher-in-chief.I'm more than a little scared.
>>134521you cant even use backpage, that was siezed by the government however long ago.this is all bugging me as well, without craigslist, i wouldnt have my boyfriend
OP here — good news! Had some luck with Doublelist recently. It’s literally the same system as CL sand it looks like everyone from my city has migrated over to it. Recommended.
>>134749Interesting website. Let's hope it lasts.
>>134749Thought it had potential, but I'm not giving these people my phone number just to post an ad. Was the verification email and 4 fucking stages of captcha not enough proof that I'm a real person? What the fuck.
>>134769To be fair, I distinctly remember borrowing someone's phone to do verification for posting a CL ad a decade ago when I was a college freshman. Maybe they stopped doing that at some point, but by then I'd stopped using it so IDK.SO, for science, I'm giving this a shot. Did the phone thing, posted an ad. Has been simultaneously "verified, will be up shortly" and "has expired, was removed, or deleted".... for 5 hours without appearing in the listings. "Status: reviewed." Granted I posted in advance since it said review can take up to 48 hours, but I'm not expecting much to come of it if there's already like 3 pages of new results on top by the time it even shows up, provided it does at all. We'll see I guess. Will report back once I've got a clearer picture of the site's mechanics.
>>134769Oh shit, looks like dl is gonna score me a sweetly discreet blowjob with lots of ball worship.I forgive you doublelist. You're flawed but you work. Can't wait to Arabian Gas Mask some thirsty slut. Or get murdered. Either is good.
>>134771All right so. The test post took 12 hours to appear on the main site, by which point it was 4am and already on the 3rd page. I am doubtful whether it was even seen that time around.For now the best strategy for posting an ad would seem to be submitting it WELL in advance, letting it get reviewed, then after 48 hours have elapsed you can renew the post to the top of the listings at a time of your choosing. The list appears to update on a rolling 5-minute basis, so it should show up quickly after that.What this also means is that you can't just refresh to see all the new listings at the top of the page - many are going to appear randomly throughout several pages based on when they were first submitted, not when they were reviewed/approved. Since there are no image previews before clicking a post, and there's seemingly no way to effectively filter results based on, say, age - this translates to seeing many of the same posts/images over and over again, including ones you're decidedly not in to. The currently bugged favoriting system does little to help the issue.So, it has some potential, and I understand it's a work in progress, but for now it is still kinda janky, and without quite having the same size userbase yet you'll start to notice a lot of repeats and frequent flyers. Not entirely my cup of tea, but I suppose this is the state of the art at this point....
>>134517fucking same, op. i've never lived in a big enough city to have a lot of options available to me, so everyone around here kind of collectively agreed to use CL. i'm gonna miss it now it's gone.pic related...? maybe?
https://doublelist.com/notice/Well all right, fuck this. Vulgar language and lewd pictures not allowed, what the fuck am I reading.
They started sprinkling "sponsored" results in to the listings as well, which are just ads that link to popup-tier 3rd party websites.
>>134891Honestly kind of weird to me, in my state nudity seems to be tolerated and practically everyone who posts pics has their cock in it so maybe it’s a state to state thing? The only other site I can think of that works some of the time is Silverdaddies, which sounds like it’s a site where you can only find old guys but it’s good for everyone. However it does kind of suck because you’re only allowed two messages a day on their site so you basically have to include your email if you want anyone to actually hit you up, and even then it’s not used with much frequency. For instance I’ll check my email one day at random and find that some dude hit me up, but he never provided an email so the chances of him logging in totally depend on his own activity. They do send you email alerts when you get a message though so sometimes you can catch it, but for me right now, Doublelist is gonna have to do (which sucks because those email alerts always get thrown into my spam folder which doesn’t push me a notification).
Whats the best place to get pussy and fuck guys in the ass, now?
>>135166did grindr close too?
>>135188There’s no way they did that. Although Craigslist closing personals makes it a bit more plausible I guess. There’s another site called megapersonals that’s used by escorts in pretty much every other section save for Male for Male so try checking that out.
smh? Is that an acronym for “sharing musical heroin” or “shaming my hard-on,” or something... ↵
